They are pretty long, a week can average from 50-70 a week. There is no getting around that. We are formally not allowed by the company to work on Saturdays, but Sunday is fair game.
>>
>>1019177
I'm not sure
>>
>>1019172
staff and work culture is very good tho (very supportive, helpful, not really cutthroat), just gets hectic when we are near closing a deal
>>
>>1019180
That's odd. Why is Sunday fair game?

Also, does Credit Suisse have a hedge fund like JP Morgan does?
>>
>>1019196
They want us to work as much as possible(no shit lol) and give saturdays off as more people have plans/party on saturday
>>
>>1019196
and yes they do have a hedgefund
>>
Your Canary Wharf office had good coffee. People were nice. Keep up the good work senpai, no complaints about CS.

Should be fine for being deployed in Chiraq.

Presumably, being a junior analyst means he is in the first 1-2 years at his job, of course he's not making bank yet.
>>
how'd you get yer job
>>
>>1019383
Damn, Is the banking scene even big there ? As a non american, everything seems to be concentrated in NY in USA and LONDON in Europe.
>>
>>1020543
CS may be different but at other firms a junior analyst is subordinate to a traditional analyst and is paid less (and usually recruited from non-target schools). If they do well they can get bumped to analyst.
>>
>>1019166
any inside info? I presume you're not on work work pc...

Jesus christ. I'm going to ask the very expensive questions since everyone else seems to do it.

What did you study at the university?

How did you get the job?

Did you get the job through the nretworking you did in university?

How much of a target university did you attend?

How did you get into your university i.e did you have straight A's or did you have ok grades?
>>
>>1021496
bumping for this
>>
>>1019180
>>1019333
So roughly ($75k+10k bonus)....
$32/hr @ 50 hrs a week, or
$23/hr @ 70 hrs a week

What do you think your odds are at surviving long enough to make bank?
>>
>>1022274
2 years is standard time frame of an analyst stint.
Considering the pay increases greatly as you climb the ladder its worth it imo(Im not OP btw)
>>
>>1019166
Any regrets? Are there any other jobs you would rather have had? Like say, actuarial work?

>>1021496
Bumping for this as well.

What exactly do you analyze?

Hey OP, I'm a sophomore about to be interviewed by them for an IB Capital Markets summer internship.

Any advice for landing an offer? What do you like/dislike about Credit? How does it compare to its competitors?
>>
>>1019166
OP how did you get that position? Do you only have BS in mathematics or also a MS?

Any advice for a math undergrad shitter who also wants to become le epic banker?
>>
>>1019166
How quickly are you going to be let go when the securities crash happens?

>>
>>1023602
Go to a target school, get at least a 3.75 to be competitive, have 1 or 2 internships IN banking, join multiple clubs, try to play at least 1 recreational sport, maybe join a fraternity for networking (networking is very important), and have outstanding social skills and an impeccable work ethic.

Credit Suisse/Bloomberg say "oil will remain low for the next 5 years." Do you stand by this statement?

Wait until oil falls to $20 per barrel, then buy for the long haul?

Not everyone is cut out for investment banking man. I know a lot of good guys that didn't make the cut even though they had the motivation, drive, knowledge, and passion. Life isn't fair so to even the playing fields you have to hedge your future against the lows (not getting a job in IB) by getting multiple degrees and networking multiple fields. Best of luck fellas.
